Stroke is a chronic disease with acute events.
Coding Guidelines Residual neurological effects of a stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) should be documented using CPT category I69 codes indicating sequelae of cerebrovascular disease. Codes I60-67 specify hemiplegia, hemiparesis, and monoplegia and identify whether the dominant or nondominant side is affected.
ICD-10 Code for Personal history of transient ischemic attack (TIA), and cerebral infarction without residual deficits- Z86. 73- Codify by AAPC.
Obstruction in blood flow (ischemia) to the brain can lead to permanent damage. This is called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). It is also known as cerebral infarction or stroke. Rupture of an artery with bleeding into the brain (hemorrhage) is called a CVA, too.
Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the medical term for a stroke. A stroke is when blood flow to a part of your brain is stopped either by a blockage or the rupture of a blood vessel.
A stroke, also referred to as a cerebral vascular accident (CVA) or a brain attack, is an interruption in the flow of blood to cells in the brain.
There are two types of stroke:Ischemic stroke.Hemorrhagic stroke.
Stroke is NOT an accident. The better and more meaningful term is "brain attack", similar in significance to "heart attack". Acute stroke is defined as the acute onset of focal neurological findings in a vascular territory as a result of underlying cerebrovascular disease.
Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is characterized by the sudden loss of blood circulation to an area of the brain, typically in a vascular territory, resulting in a corresponding loss of neurologic function.
